Stuff About Me:

Dear Friends and Family, 

I am so, so excited to tell you that this coming spring I will have the incredible honor of running the 2016 Boston Marathon. I am extremely proud to say I will be doing so in support of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center’s Annual Fund.

I am running in the memory of my uncle, Peter Van Leeuwen, who received treatment for glioblastoma at BIDMC. Anyone who knew Peter knew he was an airplane guy. He flew them, he fixed them, and he knew everything about them. Although he is no longer with us, I know he’ll be there in spirit on Marathon Monday, flying down the course with me.

BIDMC depends on the Annual Fund to fulfill its mission of providing compassionate patient care. This fund raises unrestricted dollars that can be used immediately for a wide range of needs. It provides a reliable, steady source of funding for the programs that need it most, including promising research projects, such as cancer genetics investigations. Cancer is a disease that affects almost everyone in one way or another, but through funds like this, we can work together to find a cure! 

My fundraising goal is $7,500 and I would like not only to meet, but to exceed this number. From $10 to $1,000, I appreciate anything you can give to this wonderful cause; every little bit counts and no gesture is too small. Thank you in advance for your support (both moral and monetary). I can’t wait to share this journey with you!
